Opuntia is a classic, remarkably comfortable everyday pullover, fitting every body shape and every wardrobe! I designed my version to go well with jeans, but you can simply make it waistlong to match it nicely with dresses or skirts. The details on the arms and mid-height collar, which can be rolled, are its only embellishments. Using rib as the main stitch underlines its modern look and makes it elastic and fitting the body.

“Opuntia” has been created in collaboration with Emilia & Philomene.
